This is where the river changes its course from east to south near Visegrád, with the Transdanubian Mountains  on the right bank and the North Hungarian Mountains on the left bank. It is often considered as one of the most beautiful sections of the river. It is a major touristic attraction in Hungary with rich history and stunning natural beauty. Mountains and rivers, natural parks with rich wildlife, royal seats with castles and religious centers, charming little villages hidden in the valleys: this is the Danube Bend.
